Everytime I restart tor with the bridge enabled, I cant get to oftc
conn. refused
any idea why I cannot connect here when the bridge is running?

calwig: have you tried different servers?
arma
calwig: can you do other stuff with your tor when it's using the bridge? like, browse the web?
BarkerJr
rieo, where should I send it? :)
how safe confidential are these files?
rieo
BarkerJr: can you say size of it file and last byte from it?
BarkerJr
88 bytes... I don't have a hex editor, but the notepad displays it as a line break, so the last two bytes are probably \r\n
rieo
thanks.
any files at stats dir?
BarkerJr
just that bridge-stats
         

calwig
know why i cant connect to oftc.net when I enable the bridge?
jr_
oh no
go away
rieo
BarkerJr: those warnings about extra-info still present? or bridge can't restart?
BarkerJr
they start right after "Self-testing indicates your ORPort is reachable from the outside. Excellent. Publishing server descriptor."
MissAlyx
when starting tor, does it get its peer list from a central server?
BarkerJr
seemed to have stopped with "Performing bandwidth self-test...done."
MissAlyx, well, it gets a peer list from a mirror of a central server
but it gets the peer list via the tor network
MissAlyx
but to get the peer list "Via the tor network" it needs to already know peers, surely :/?
BarkerJr
it saves the peer list to disk for later starts
MissAlyx
what about first time?
BarkerJr
I'm not sure

SoftICE
im the author of TorDNS ive been trying to get tordns to work in windows 7 geesh for some reason it won't send back the dns reply properly...... doesnt make any sense...... if you are a onion router personel please email me at dreadmac@yahoo.ca i am trying to rewrite TorDNS a bit to use the tor-resolve.exe program instead of accessing the onion router system to retrieve dns information.....
hey calwig
calwig
hey there, someone here should answer shortly, im not staff, im a user. :)

SoftICE
hey nsa
BarkerJr
I deleted the stats directory and tor seems to work fine now
phobos
too bad softice didn't stick around
calwig
send him an email
phobos
pfft
calwig
Im not sure if that's a yes or a no :)
phobos
i did already, but that's so high latency
calwig
well next time I'll suggest to them to hang out a bit longer
phobos
they rarely do
"I demand answers RIGHT NOW!"
"omg no one has answered my question!"
calwig
Bla Bla Bla! Act Now!
phobos
"tor sucks! lol!"
calwig
yep
phobos
anyway
calwig
I havent yet seen that here, but Im sure I'll be amazed at some point
know where i can find the har2009 talk

torifythenet
is it safe to use flash with tor?
phobos

torifythenet
is using flash plugin safe with tor?
calwig
good question
phobos
no
https://www.torproject.org/download.html.en#Warning
or https://www.torproject.org/torbutton/faq.html.en#noflash
torifythenet
phobos: why isn't it safe to download stuff?
you download html pages why would other stuff be unsafe?
phobos
did you read those links?
torifythenet
yeah
phobos
so flash is a binary blob you download and run
it can do whatever it wants while running
torifythenet
no that is not what I asked now
I am talking about downloading just any kind of file phobos
phobos
because lots of file types open up applications that can de-anonymize you
BarkerJr
now the tor on my server is crashing
*** glibc detected *** /usr/local/bin/tor: free(): invalid pointer: 0x082e82f0 ***
phobos
get a core file?
BarkerJr
no, I guess I could make one with gdb, though
here's the stacktrace that tor printed to console: http://www.barkerjr.net/tmp/peach.txt
I forget what the command is in gdb to create a core
maybe I'm not finding the core cause it's not a seg fault
turns out my server had core dumps disabled.... oops... msg'd you the backtrace (don't want it public, cause it does have private info in it)
so here's what I did... I made a copy of my files and then deleted the stats directory on the server and now it's running fine... since I habe the copy, I can get you any files you might want
kaluva
Tor is telling me that it has no certificates for authorities, and not enough directory information to build a circuit. I'm guessing that means my connections are getting blocked. Am I right? How do i get around that? I can ssh somewehre else if that would help.
nickm
BarkerJr: you don't generally tell gdb to make a core; you give gdb a core to debug with. The OS generates the core for you when the program crashes.
I notice also that you're running tor 0.2.2.7-alpha with Libevent 1.1a. This is like getting a new car and having your dinosaur pull it around town for you. ;)
If you wanted the incantation to get the OS to believe it should generate cores, look into ulimit -c or unlimit coredumpsize or whatever your shell likes to hear
r1eo
router_rebuild_descriptor() do memory leak if extrainfo_dump_to_string() returned -1; then "ri = tor_malloc_zero(sizeof(routerinfo_t));" not frees;
loops of tries router_rebuild_descriptor() and memory out.
after failed router_dump_router_to_string() the same leak and even more.

hey all, ive instaleld tor, installed polipo, and replaced the polipo config file with the file on http://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-unix.html.en#polipo - but no loev
love
when i go to "whatismyip" it sees my ip, i also have torbutton installed and tor enabled through Vidalia
any idea why i cant get anonymouty
Luser
running WinXP. Tor seems to use alg.exe to establish a FTP connection to 92.243.8.139. is this normal? I noticed this in the past as well.
evilsherpa
BOOYA Sorted itself out
i think it was privoxy
sorry proxyfoxy
Luser
yeah I hate Polipo too.
whoops what did I just say?
and why?
so anyone else notice that FTP connection?
what's it for?
evilsherpa
haha
Luser
what so funny be
arma, are you available?
evilsherpa
any idea how to install torsocks?
Luser
I never heard of that.
tor + privoxy + vidalia, what more do you need?
fossiiil
transparent proxy with Tor
Luser
but Tor already functions as a proxy.
anyway do you have any idea about the FTP connection?
rieo
no ftp connection it's or-port of relay guard node, which one with other two using your client.
Luser
then why is alg.exe used instead of tor.exe?
and I figure this guard node isn't always used.
rieo
what soft are you used for detect established connection?
Luser
Qprime, I'm on WinXP and Tor uses alg.exe to establish a connection to 92.243.8.139 on port 21.
rieo: firewall.
I am client only.
QPrime
Luser: ok... well that particular guard server uses tcp port 21 - so thats normal.
Luser
right. I should state I have no idea what a guard server is.
QPrime
Luser: a guard is a designated entry point into the Tor network. (as voted on by Tor Directory authorities) its used to help limit the amount of profiling that can be done on Tor nodes.
Luser
OK. makes sense.
QPrime
basically think of it as a Tor "preferred" entry point. nodes get voted on as entry guards every so often and get rotated around.
Luser
I just thought it was weird how it used port 21.
anyway. I tried to run a non-exit relay the other day.
didn't work too well because I'm a moron when it comes to configuring my router.
QPrime
Luser: nope, thats normal. different nodes decide on what ports to use - mixing things up is good ;)
Luser
I know but I never thought of using a "regular" port.
I'll remember about this.
QPrime
Luser: what router are you using (make/model)? PM if you are paranoid...
of course thats if you want some help with it.
Luser
I can do this on my own! probably.
hehe
QPrime
Luser: no problem. good luck. Tor always needs more relay and bridge nodes.
Luser
port forwarding is the problem, even if UPnP autoconf worked fine, the router still blocks incoming conns.
I had to disable SPI and ran a bridge relay for a couple of hours. I have low speed and nobody used it anyway.
QPrime
You should not have to disable SPI on your router for incoming connections. Also bridges are going to be lightly used (usually). *any* bandwidth you can donate (20KiB+) is good.
Luser
I know I shouldn't - but I still have to figure out how to configure port forw correctly. I'll try again today.
anyway, I have to go, bye.

seriously? its barely even the weekend yet... *sigh*
rieo
funny, seems like real ip of bots owner is 0x55542326. the same signature as last time.
dererk
and doublefunny, does this guy think that someone could really do that crap? :D
QPrime
true, get ready for a tor ban soon :(
I've seen a number of channels getting small floods.
waschinski
What kind of piece of trash is Torbutton?
My System had crashed a few times now and whenever I reboot the machine and start Firefox, Torbutton starts powered off and reloads all tabs with direct connection.
Anonymity gone.
misc
i guess there is more diplomatic way of saying there is a problem with it ( and also more clear and descriptive way too )
waschinski
misc, not in this case. The problem is to crucial to be diplomatic.
misc
waschinski: well, from what I know with human nature people tend to be more receptive when you do not start to insult their work, but maybe this is wrong
waschinski
misc, sorry I can not be friendly and diplomatic about it. If I was living in China, I'd be dead now.
phobos
waschinski: are you using the default configuration of torbutton?
because it sounds like you changed settings
waschinski
phobos, I am not sure. I uninstalled Torbutton
I will no longer use it. To dangerous.
phobos
ok, if you don't want to fix it, why complain?
QPrime
"My System had crashed a few times now" <-- I'm assuming its windows. have you checked your filesystem/drives for corruption? that can affect config files and stop things from working properly.
waschinski
Not complaining, was trying to get the word out so other people don't install it.
QPrime, no it is Linux
misc
i suggest a /. post
and linux fs can also be corrupted
phobos
millions of people use torbutton just fine
waschinski
phobos, how do you know?
phobos
because people come in here and say "torbutton rocks, thanks!"
waschinski
phobos, I don't mean the "million of people" but "fine"
phobos
and they tell us at conferences, emails
waschinski
OK. I hope so.
phobos
it sounds like you had an extension conflict
crashing firefox
waschinski
phobos, the entire system crashed
phobos
that seems highly suspect
